Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences. Our department serves as the focal point for multidisciplinary bioscience research and education at Michigan Tech.

The biological sciences are pivotal to new discoveries in life and environmental sciences, and for improving human and ecosystem health on the planet. Studying biological sciences will allow you to experience multiple lecture, laboratory, and field opportunities at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Your studies and experiences will help you build your foundation of knowledge and tools for exploring the world and solving problems. Programs in human health and biology, ecology and evolutionary biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, and computational biology will allow you to explore your interests and career options. These include learning about terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, botany and plant sciences, microbiology, environmental toxicology and restoration, health and sustainability, physiology, immunology, the genetics and molecular biology of disease, and training in nursing and medical laboratory sciences. Our pre-health professions programs prepare students to enter medical, dental, and other health professional schools.

Biological Sciences is a hub of innovation, application, education, and collaboration throughout Michigan Tech and beyond.

You can contact us with any questions or feedback.
